Advanced Identity Protector claims to be a privacy enhancement tool, that protects personal and confidential information or users. The features of this program say that it scans the different area of your PC looking for sensitive information such as passwords, email, credit card, or banking details. It also helps you in deleting them or saving them in a vault.
If you look at the features and interface of Advanced Identity Protector you find the application legitimate and useful. However, it has been seen that this program is used by some adware and PUP to display scan results and fool users. The adware redirects users to its official page where it displays warning messages about risks and asks users to purchase the program, in order to remove those risks.
The page encourages users to call on the support number (855) 737-4053. Once you dial the number the support executives try to persuade you to install Advanced Identity Protector your computer. They scare you with the name of all possible computer threats. Sometimes its makers distributed it using the Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP). They bundle it with other software and when you install that software, it also enters in your system.
Once Advanced Identity Protector is in your system, it keeps trying to make you purchase the full version. Whenever you restart your PC, it starts the scan. In the scan results, it displays so many possible risks. The whole idea is to persuade users into paying for the premium software. The warning and risks that it displays are not actually that much harmful. If you have an antimalware in your system, then there is nothing to worry.
It is also possible that this program may track your browsing activity. So we suggest you to not install the program in your system. If you have it then remove it immediately from your system. Follow the instructions below to remove it.
